, chairman upton, that this is the law? you know, they have this whole thing, this is the existing law, this is the current law that passes the supreme court, blah, blah, blah. this is the law, and worry not going to change the law? >> well, how did they change the law for the employer mandate for a year? it happens, that's the way it goes. they are given lots of waivers. let's see regulations, delayed or imposed that say, hey, if you like the health insurance and you were insured earlier this year, can you keep it, worry not going to impose that penalty on you later on. >> i am staggered to lead, there are tweets about this, fred, and other things that valerie jared, the top adviser and jake carney are now blaming insurance companies for can selling plans within they are forced to by the obama care mandates. >> are you exactly right. it not their fault and, you know, we knew early on, private and mutual, cancelled a million policy, i think they announced that a year, a year-and-a-half ago something like that for people across the country. so they knew what they were getting into. the
of that law were found unconstitutional. one third of clinics were set to close their doors when the law would have gone into effect. one provision required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges of a hospital within 30 miles of that abortion facility. federal district judge wrote the admitting privileges provision of house bill 2 does not bear a rational relationship to the legitimate right of the state in preserving and promoting fetal life or a woman's health and in any event places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a non-viable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her. the judge struck down some of the law's restriks on the use of pills used to induce apportion. wendy davis issued this warning during her filibuster of the bill. >> i'd say if you vote for this bill you're simply happy to ignore medical science and watch women and children die for no reason. >> texas families are stronger and healthier when women across the state have access to quality health care. i would rather see our tax dollars spent on improving our kids' schools ra

. if you had a plan before the law passed in 2010 the president said you could keep it, and you can, unless your insurer makes major changes. that turnover has been going on for decades. listen to one of florida's top executives talking about it. >> we're not cutting people. we're transitioning people. what we've been doing is informing folks that their plan doesn't meet the test of the essential health benefits. therefore, they have a choice of many options that we make available through the exchange. and in fact, with subsidy, many people will be getting better plans at a lesser cost. >> he's right. this is like your car being recalled by the manufacturer because the brakes don't work. you're getting a better product. the white house may have oversold how little change there would be in the individual market, but there's no conspiracy sear. the individual market has been broken for a very long time. but today that changes. if you have a pre-existing condition like high blood pressure or asthma, you can no longer be denied or forced to pay more. half of americans in the individual market w
. if congress passes a law for all americans why wouldn't that apply to congress, too? tonight, senator rand paul's lonely fight to make it a reality. breaking tonight, fox news has confirmed that while the the president was promising you could keep your health care plan the white house has known for almost three years if not more that the promise wouldn't hold for millions of americans. we have evidence. good evening, everyone. i'm megyn kelly. americans heard this president say it over and over. if you like your doctor, you like your plan, you can keep them under obama care. many had doubts. one major concern that those buying insurance on the individual market, people without employer coverage would see their plans cancelled. why? those plans tend to be cheap with less benefits. obama care requires insurers to beep up coverage. that costs money. the fear was that insurers forced to offer more benefits would raise rates or dump policies all together. that's exactly what is happening. contrary to the president's explicit promises. listen. >> actually, any insurance you currently have would
to americans about his health care law going back to the campaign. >> when he was trying to get the law passed, repeatedly said, if you currently have health insurance, you'll be able to keep your plan. this morning, david axelrod was pressed on that point and said the majority, the vast majority, would get to keep their plans. he no longer works at the white house. from that podium, will you admit when the president said, if you have a plan, you'll get to keep it, that was not true? >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> greg, i want to talk about ridicule. when your policy or your campaign or your candidate becomes the target of ridicule on "saturday night live," have you a huge problem on your hands? >> i don't really think so. i think -- i feel like the joke is on us for laughing. oh, finally, the cool kids are now seeing what all the dorks have been seeing for two years and we're supposed to be grateful for this one little, you know, colonel of satire. b
're over the website. >> the problem with obama care isn't just the website, it's the whole law. >> the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> the problems go well beyond a flopped website. >> it is clear obama care and flaws are much more than the website. the website is the tip of the iceberg. >> this week republicans smelled blood in president obama's claim no americans would be kicked off their existing plans. >> let me repeat this. nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have. >> and yet as nbc reports a detailed look at the legislation shows that the administration knew that more than 40 to 67% of those in the individual market, or some percentage of 14 million americans, would not be able to keep their existing plans. never mind the fact the new plans will offer more comprehensive coverage and sometimes at a lower price tag, this is clearly the next front in a war on the nation's health care law. >> we know this morning is the president knew that these letters were coming. in the president knew these letters were comin
of people just as well as certain law changes like delaying the employer mandate, but keeping the individual mandate on the books when it comes to the president's health care law. i think people are paying more attention. they have more access to more varied view points on what's happening in washington, and they learn too many of our lawmakers are not representing the interests of the american people well, but their own interests and interest of well connected groups in washington. i think that's another reason why people are increasingly distrusting their government looking for somebody who will represent their views. i think they are looking for principled leadership, and i think we saw some of that with the shutdown where some lawmakers stood for principle, know the law is bad, and we -- lawmakers, they didn't vote for it. it was passed on a purely partisan basis, and the house has the constitutional right to deny funding to laws like that, and an attempt to do that was important to show that lawmakers act on principle at times and in the best interest of the nation. >> our next question

. this is a key basic element of the law, creating a federal definition of insurance. your plan does not meet the definition you are out of luck. anyone would have known this is going to happen. gerri: to you. the administration is fighting back saying that, well, look, the information was out there. he talked about this a couple of years ago in the media. it is all hats. do you agree? >> no. i mean, they never admitted, they never previously admitted until this very moment and millions of americans would lose the health insurance they had. as rates just indicated, the president has kept the line if you like your plan you will be able to keep it. everyone who understood the lot knew that was not always going to happen and specifically the obama administration regulations written for their grandfather plans that might have been allowed to keep going, they wrote regulations summarily in tightly that no one could ever meet the tests. they did this on purpose. they wanted the plan to close to force millions of people out of there are insurance and to populate the new obamacare exchanges. it was n
